BingoBoingo: From the mines: "
BingoBoingo: "It got to the point where they were showing me that the president of Nigeria had sent me a letter. It had his picture on it and everything," Haines said. "I looked it up on the computer to see what the Nigerian president looked like, and it was him." Once, he received an email claiming to be from Robert Mueller, who was then the FBI director. The email was addressed to Haines, code-name "B-DOG," and it was signed with the FBI's address
BingoBoingo: and official seal. "I wish you can remove doubt and suspicious and go ahead I assured you that you will never regret this fund release," the email said in part."
mircea_popescu: people usually send letters with their own picture on them where this guy is from ?!
mircea_popescu: what, like an xmas card ?
BingoBoingo: Typical USG strategy: "Mircea Popescu can't exist, he has a blog and pictures and everything"
BingoBoingo: Only Elon Musk Oxen with twitters and privacy can be rich
mircea_popescu: wait, the president of nigeria rich ?!
BingoBoingo: All that oil
BingoBoingo: Like Maduro, except he can pump his
mircea_popescu: lol
BingoBoingo: That is the great tragedy of Venezuala. All that oil and... It's the sticky heavy stuff.
BingoBoingo: Not quite as much so as the sticky stuff in pete land, but not exactly pipe friendly
douchebag: mircea_popescu: Well, my main issue is that I don't work for free. I'm not going to spend time working on a project that I will not even be compensated for when I could be spending my time working on projects that I will compensated for.
mircea_popescu: makes sense.
BingoBoingo: douchebag: There's still qntra. Keep in communion, follow the cause.
asciilifeform: douchebag: when you waltz the gurlz open, do you also charge'em ?
asciilifeform: if 'dun work for phree'
douchebag: asciilifeform: Could you elaborate?
lobbes: douchebag: at least keep reading the logs. I wager that if you do, within 5 years time you may start seeing the value of building reputation with the world's only sovereign ☟︎
asciilifeform: douchebag: do you charge'em per fuck.
douchebag: Are you asking if I charge women to let me fuck them?
asciilifeform: aha
douchebag: BingoBoingo: I'm a pretty good writer, especially when it comes to politics/privacy/and technology. From what I currently understand I recieve I recieve one qntra share per word of each accepted article and shares go between 0.00000850 to 0.00001750 BTC, correct?
asciilifeform: douchebag: link us to something you've written ? ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( or is this ye olde 'can you play violin?' 'dunno, not tried yet' )
asciilifeform: meanwhile, in oldies, asciilifeform recently acquired a specimen of the famous http://mk90.blogspot.com/2009/09/85.html pocket comp ( was made, from late-perestroika psychosis, in chassic copied from a jp calculator ) . pdp11 (!) compatible box.
asciilifeform: the noteworthy bit, is that the unit -- stamped 1991 -- has the original factory seal. and on account of the design of the box, can show that: ~original~ 1991 batteries, still function.
asciilifeform: that there apparently some primo atlantean lost tech.
asciilifeform: ( to be utterly pedantic, it is possible that somebody applied a faux seal. or that the batteries were swapped by orig maker, who guaranteed them for two (!) yrs after ~sale~ )
asciilifeform: summary : su made a pdp-11 that 1) ran on 20 milliampere 2) included such things as a... supercapacitor ( i had nfi that even 1 of these was ever made in su ) that powers the sram ( yes ) for ~15 minutes~ during batt swap.
asciilifeform: this last bit, made it possible for this box to be used ( until, reportedly, as late as 2007 ) for crypto.

asciilifeform: uh ok..
hanbot: meanwhile i accidentally stumbled on TLP's return as it might look through the brainpan of elliot rodgers, oodles of cringe for anyone in need of a little sharpening for the ol' misanthropic awl: http://archive.is/AIaGN
mircea_popescu: ahahaha what the FUCK is that!
hanbot: if we're to believe him, a -~*college teacher*~-
mircea_popescu: they found him dead in a ditch, sewed him back together and ran reanimative storm-powered electricity through the pile ?
hanbot: it's aliveh!!1
mircea_popescu: frankensballas.
asciilifeform: waiwaat wat's this to do with tlp
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform some superficial formal similarity i guess ?
asciilifeform: aa i misread.
asciilifeform back to bed
asciilifeform: hanbot: that d00d is a riot. having trouble dispatching himself, in ameristan, where 300buxorz buys you a 'mossberg'
asciilifeform: ( in the coupla states where it doesn't -- 10bux still buys you a box of shells, and another 10 -- iron pipe at the 'home despot' and old nail... )
asciilifeform: 5bux at toy store buys you a 'oh noez he was armed!11' and a phree police firing squad, for the pathological coward. etc
BingoBoingo: douchebag: That is the case. The shares trade on the market so the price can move. Style guide is here: http://trilema.com/2015/lacessiveram-editor/
mircea_popescu: !!rate douchebag -1 as it turns out, the more elaborate effort one puts into distinguishing gold from sand, the more elaborately sandy sand the one ends up with. gold is irrespectively evident on the first pass. ☟︎

lobbes: Sure. Best case as I see it is: mebbe d00d reads in silence for couple years, then, once not-20-years-old and able to grok, comes back and does productive things. Probably won't happen, but ya never know.
mircea_popescu: this or any other,\
mircea_popescu: at issue isn't whether yes-or-no, but whether specific-identity-or-not-particularily, see ? even if what you describe happens, the item coming back won't meaningfully be douchebag.
lobbes: Hm, this makes sense. 20 yo lobbes was not in any sense the lobbes of today
mircea_popescu: moreover, an attempted nominal continuity with your 20yo self would rather hinder you today.
mircea_popescu: so... win-win, as they say.

mircea_popescu: maybe he starts a church.
mircea_popescu: anyway, nfi why thailand is famous for its ladyboys. they're a minority there, while united states consists of nothing but. ☟︎
hanbot: afaik because in thailand the ladyboys work at it, diligently and purposefully. where as Joe vonCan'tStackIt here prolly goes around in lumberjack plaids religiously checking the "M" box
mircea_popescu: i suppose so.

douchebag: mircea_popescu: I just got back, what was the exact reason I was negrated? ☟︎☟︎
BingoBoingo: In other news, Mexico whooped Germany and the few Brazillians here are substantially louder and more excited than the Uruguayos were
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo i can't imagine why, they 1-1'd with switzerland.
BingoBoingo: Before the game tied, Brazil scored their goal. For that on goal about a theird of the way into game time the handful of Brazillians for more audible for more time.
BingoBoingo: I am guessing they assumed more would follow?
mircea_popescu: i guess so huh.
BingoBoingo: But, I can't be arsed to watch anything other than the last 10 minutes of the games as they happen. I hear what I hear.
BingoBoingo: Colombia plays tomorrow, but thus far Uruguay is the only South American team with a win.
mircea_popescu: it's a terrible spectator sport.
mircea_popescu: it happened to be on screen @whorehouse earlier, but otherwise...
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: here's where i admit that i also can't bring self to watch 1st 10. or for that matter, the in-between
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-06-17#1826240 << oh hey finally drummed out ☝︎

mircea_popescu: up there with golf, or male tenis i guess. who the fruck would want to ~watch~ this
BingoBoingo: Absolutely awful. If I make it to my 70's I want to retire then in a baseball Latino country.
asciilifeform was off in the sunlit world, picking cherries with relatives

BingoBoingo: I might watch all of Wednesday's midday Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia game, because everything else will be closed.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: That's why it is 'the zone' he is packed and not loose
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i'll even admit that it could be made an interesting sport, if, let's say, they armed the saudis with scimitars, the egyptians -- with that sickle thing; etc
asciilifeform: but as it is i can't summon any interest
mircea_popescu: iirc saudis have one of the worst teams in the world.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> iirc saudis have one of the worst teams in the world. << This is the interest.
BingoBoingo: I want to watch a double digit blowout
mircea_popescu: i somehow doubt it.
BingoBoingo: It'll probably still be a bore, but I will have seen the exception to 1-1 ties that proves the sport is a bore

BingoBoingo: Argentina drew to Iceland, Spain drew to Portual... Russia put up five points against the Saudis... If Uruguay can't break 12 against they Saudis what is they world coming to.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform khmere, whatever.
